Hey.. . . I heard from my friend Mike Bratton that Tom mentioned how Silver Springs doesn't have the problems with Vandalism and ... . .the reason why. Thanks a ton Tom. We work at that and we care enough about our kids to face up, deal with it and follow through. Most of all, we build relationships and our kids don't want to "let us down." They're motivated to "do the right thing". This is our home and we take care of it at Silver.
